iOS App Review Exchange

All,

I've created this iOS App Review Exchange thread for any developers out there who would like to get more app reviews in the App Store for their FREE games.

We released our first game 'What it Takes - Free' 2 days ago, and whilst we have a decent amount of reviews, we'd definitely like some more! So hopefully this will help us and everyone else who is involved .


This will work by developers EXCHANGING reviews. To make sure this works fairly for everyone (i don't want people getting free reviews - this is for the community to help each other), interested developers must do the following:

1. Post a link to their iTunes app page.
2. Post what their iTunes nickname is.

To help people find your app and nickname easily i'll include you in the 'HOT' list at the bottom of this post.

When you have done this, please download and review any of the community member's apps that are on the 'HOT' list, and send them a PM telling them that you have done so. Once done, that community member should return the gesture by reviewing your app.

If this isn't the case within 36 hours, please send me a PM notifying me of the user (i will check your claim by reading your app store reviews), and i will move that user from the 'HOT' list and put them in the 'COLD' list (also found at the bottom of this post).

Do not review any apps that are in the 'COLD' list.

If the user then reviews your app after being moved to the 'COLD' list, i will move them back to the 'HOT' list.

I hope this is helpful for everyone!

Sorry to be that guy but doesn't that go against the whole ideas of reviews? I mean you know the reviews generated by this "service" will be anything but real ones.

Sure it can be slow to get them, and it sucks to have dumb 1 star ones, but to resort to having fake 5 star reviews is hardly a solution.

You really think this "service" is to provide real balanced reviews and that someone who gives 1 stars will be on the hot list? Please.

This kind of reminds me of TA's Game of the Week last week how developers supported each others games.

I totally agree. This is one reason why I don't bother with app reviews anymore on iTunes. They're either full of fake shill ones, fake ones by devs promising iTunes vouchers or fake ones such as what this thread suggests

Makes a mockery of it all if its basically give me a 5 star review and ill give you a 5 star review

Another way to get more reviews is to kindly remember your users on writing them. As we added a reminder dialog the users gave us a significant amount of reviews. It's up to you how often you like to remember your users. Fieldrunners for example has a heart shaped button where you get the "Rate Hint".
As mentioned above we remind the players after they solved #n levels. (To get better ratings use good timings and care about the mood the player has)
